Grassroots Webinar 4/3/17

Thanks for joining this Interfaith Immigration Coalition Webinar on Prophetic Witness and Nonviolent Direct Action on Monday, April 3rd, 4-5:30 PM ET/ 1-2:30 PM PT.


As we continue to confront the harsh anti-immigrant policies of the Trump Administration this Interfaith Immigration Webinar focused on developing skills to plan nonviolent direct actions that can add to the prophetic witness of the faith community.

We also heard about the importance of an effective advocacy strategy to push back against the White House budget proposal to further fund the deportation machine through increasing ICE agents, mandatory detention and border militarization.
